Deja vu

It seems that we are being told, on the basis of top-quality US intelligence, (Does that ring a bell?) that the Syrian President possesses weapons of mass destruction, and has used them against his opponents, killing innocents in the process.

It seems also that our government is going to join the US and anyone else who can be recruited in ‘punishing’ him, by launching massive missile strikes against his country, a tactic which will lead inevitably to the deaths of still more innocents. Change a few names and we could be back where we were ten years ago.

Will a missile strike bring back the dead? No, it will only add to their numbers. Will it bring the regime to heel? Unlikely; but it could provoke them into doing the same again . . . that’s if it was them in the first place and not the rebels. So why has David Cameron suddenly become a war-monger? Hasn’t he cast an eye upon the haunted figure that is Tony Blair today, to recognise the danger to his reputation?

Can we have the referendum now please, before Scotland is sucked into another Westminster War?

    Oh believe me, you’re not the only one (Scottish or otherwise) who wants out of this before it even starts. It’s just got absolute disaster written all over it.

    Maybe Dave reads my blog. (I know Obama does.)

      Well let’s hope they all see sense – Obama can link to you!

      I think as far as Obama is concerned, you’re associated too closely with those who persecuted his dad. Unlike the stalwart Irish, of course!

    I hate to say that Millibean is showing some sense, but he has reversed himself into a notably cowardly, but actually sensible position. For once.
